    Happy Accident…Lemony Goodness 

    Happy Accident…..Lemony Goodness

     posted 8/20/11 blogspot, copied 821/11
    in the kitchen after making home-made buttermilk. I had
    almost a 1/2 gallon of 1% milk and dumped Lemon Juice in it
    to make buttermilk. I seldom measure things like this.I decided to make my pound cake recipe using 1/2 recipe, not
    realizing that I was too short on my self-rising flour. I then cut
    the recipe another 1/2, making it a 1/4 measurement of the full
    recipe.( I used honey instead of sugar and olive oil instead of
    good old butter.)

    This turned out to be a very lemony, wonderful surprise. Of
    course, I doubt I can use this buttermilk to make biscuits. But,
    it will make delish waffles and pancakes, cookies,etc.
    The last piece was spread with vanilla yogurt sprinkled with
    cinnamon…..ummmm…Recipe follows :

    2- 1/2 c. Self-Rising Flour
    1/2 c. butter
    1 -1/2 c. sugar
    3 eggs
    1 c. milk
    1 tsp. vanilla
    350   25-30 minutes.

      I’m not good at altering recipes, always a disaster if I do, last week I was making a banana loaf, I had 4 ripe bananas and used them instead of 3 also I have a new cooker so haven’t got used to the temps, the loaf was a complete flop, it didn’t rise properly then collapsed :-(( The seagulls had a lovely feast.

    I’m picky I know. Mom put my pillow up here, but I
    wouldn’t use it acause I prefur my furry cube. She hasn’t figured out how to de-fur it yet.
    I have no privacy here either as you see.
    Ok, Mom, I said, ‘What do you want?” Of course
    she wanted nothing, just to check on me.

    Mom made me a tower by stacking organizers under the card table. I love it and I can look down on Mom
    when she comes in.  You can see how high it is by looking at the bottom photo. It is 3 organizers deep.
    Mom is having ‘Stick’ problems again and this is the 3rd try, so I hope it gets posted this time.

    Cloudy Thursday Ramblings 

    Cloudy Thursday Ramblings

     posted 8/11/11 blogspot, copied 8/21/11
    I love cloudy days especially with a possibility of rain..We’ve had rain lately
    but it never lasts long. It’s a good day to prowl through closets and re arrange
    what has been rearranged. I’m coming across papers to shred as well. I won-
    der if I’ll ever get through….oh well, it keeps this old girl occupied.

    I’ve been making my homemade ice cream with frozen peaches and frozen
    bananas, vanilla yogurt, and all natural peanut butter. This concoction really
    goes well together and is scrumptious. I stopped buying ice cream after the
    Christmas holidays last year. I also haven’t made any tea cakes this year as
    I recall. I am losing weight which is a plus. I have an under active thyroid and
    losing weight has always been a problem. I do hope that changing my eating
    habits, which includes a lot of fiber, is the reason for my weight loss.

    I bought a book by Janet Evanovich “Plum Lovin’. But I haven’t read much.
    Maybe I can after I get my work done. Oh I got it for .50 at Big Lot’s off
    clearance. I love a bargain.

    I’ve gotten hooked lately on The Young and The Restless. I used to watch
    but quit from boredom I guess. I started watching Bold and Beautiful again.
    It is interesting for now. I do get bored easily.
    Well, gotta get busy. Y’all have a good one.

      Come on over to mine GG, and sort out some stuff for me too, I hoard too much.
      No way would I make ice cream I’d be ballooning up to twenty stone before I knew it. sounds scrummy though.

    Mom, you promised me some sardines. I’m reminding you here.
    I first tried to climb the TV to get your attention. Maybe my eyes
    will tell you that I’m very serious. I saw you hide it in the big box.

    So…..? I’ll retire to my pillow after I get my fish. Thanks, Mom.

    Mom here:  Yesterday, I continued having problems posting this and then it got stormy so I just never returned….good old rain.

    Mom and I were waked up by boomies, flashes and hard water against the bedroom window.
    This was around middle of dark time. So Mom moved the bed again away from the window.
    She didn’t mind acause we needed the much needed sky water. She had to repeat , “Kassey,
    get away from the window.” I have to keep watch no matter what the weather. It’s just a cat
    thing. MOL
    I hope all our furriends have nice sky water day if you want it.

    Wednesday Hurts Rant…..Kassey

     copied 8/21/11 posted 8/3/11 on blogspot

    I’m waiting for my unfriendly neighbor to come home. I don’t think she likes me acause when I speak to her with my loud meows, she ignores me. Mom regrets not having the flashy box on video when I was pacing the window trying to get her attention. And she had to see and hear  me acauce she was watering her flowers. Mom tried to console me acause I couldn’t understand . She said,” I’m sorry,Kassey. Mommy loves you.”  Maybe some hoomans just don’t realize that we know what a simple ‘hello’ means. And it could make a house kitty so happy.

      I say hello to kittys, and doggies, so i’d say hello to you Kassey, I’m saying it now, HALLO

    Mom asked me to sit on the couch with her because it was so scary outside. Sorry, Mom, but it’s UTB for me. After the storm passed I headed to the fud room and Mom gave me a treat.
